The first official photo of Matt Smith and newly appointed companion Jenna-Louise Coleman on set has been revealed! Could The Doctor be having a permanent costume change?

The photo was released via the official Doctor Who website, and shows the actors on location with the TARDIS in the background. Matt Smith also teased the next series, saying “It [filming on the new series] is going well. Jenna brings a really different energy to the show – one which I think is very interesting.”

Without further ado, check out the image below!

We could draw your attention to the companion’s bag, or the rings on her fingers – but we are currently focused on the Doctor’s change in costume! Not only is it a much darker outfit in general, but it also seems he wears waistcoats now. Waistcoats are cool.

What do you think of the image?

    Quite a cool picture! I hope it is, I much prefer this to the green coat.

    I don’t understand why people would think it’s a permanent clothing change… they’d never abandon the tweed coat.

       Moffat said something about the Doctor getting a wardrobe change after Amy and Rory leave.

        Maybe he’s gonna wear darker stuff for a while… Like he’s in mourning or something! D’:

           I like this idea. I thought the same thing.

          My thoughts exactly! I love this look on him. I think it is very 10th doctor-esque, if that makes sense.

            I think its most reminiscent of the First Doctor, which is quite nice.

            How did I not realize this? It most certainly is, color scheme and all.

        Right, they also did technically change it from series 5 to series 6. The one he wears in series 6 is made of a completely different material, plus you also have the trench coat. It seems eleven is fashion concious.


    For someone Matt looks a lot older

       He does look older. If memory serves, there’s actually only a year gap in their ages.

  • Ariel

    I think she looks really sweet! I also find it hard to believe that Matt Smith’s costume change is permanent .. where are his suspenders?!
    I really do think that Jenna-Louise Coleman look great, though!

  • :(

    I really like his look! It’s not as if Doctor’s haven’t had two costumes before; such as the 10th Doctor with his blue and brown suits.

  • Ashlynn

    I’m not to worried about a costume change as long as he gets to keep the bow tie. 

  • VioletteTreeman

    Don’t know why but her jacket kinda reminds me of Jack’s…

    • http://www.hypable.com/author/lauracristiano/ LauraBC

       I didn’t get that vibe, but I love the idea of an off spring of Jack’s traveling with the Doctor!

  • grapes9h5

    Waistcoats are cool

  • Rory

    She’s not quite as sexy as Amy. ;)

  • Kate

    If that costume change is permanent I love it. I want to see him running around without the jacket, in just the vest, much like he did with just his suspenders. Yeah..he still looks hot.

    And Jenna is adorable. I enjoy how young she looks in comparison to Matt and the height difference since Karen was a giant haha

  • Lorena

    Waistcoats, Doctor? Really? Oy…

  • Matthewhpg

    I like the Doctor’s new wardrobe. Besides, it’s not the first change we’ve had. What about the trench coat he wore in the latter half of Series 6?

  • akacj7

    waistcoats ARE cool!

  • DP

    I’m really glad they’ve kept the bow tie, but I’m unsure about the Doctor’s outfit change. It just looks less eccentric, and more adult. And everyone knows that this 900 year old Time Lord is not an adult :) 

  • Katie M

    I like it!  Costume changes are cool! And I like Jenna’s outfit, too.  It’s very distinct from past companions, and I like that she has a bag.  I hope it’s a bag of tricks.

    I’m not expecting the tweed jacket to go anywhere.  As Matt Smith said last year, “The tweed will always be king.”

  • StarBronze175

    can we talk about the person/thingcoming out of the tardis. kinda looks oodish to me

    • BlueBronze

      I think that’s just a bald member of the crew.

      • StarBronze175

        now that the second photo has been released I agree with that

  • American Moth

    Is it just me, or does The Doctor look much older here?

  • Zoe

    I love the picture but I am still not sure if I like JLC. I hate mean girls but, I almost think she is too pretty/attractive. I have never seen her acting so I am just going to let it go.
